Why not a primary?
By Chuck Kajer
The 2006 elections are now part of history. In most cases, there were clear winners, with more than 50 percent of the voters picking the winner.
That was not the case in the New Prague mayor's race, though. With five candidates splitting the votes, Bink Bender was declared the winner with 27.5 percent of the vote.
I don't ever remember five candidates for mayor in my lifetime.
